A patronal meme

Dear Fr Daren from Servant and Steward has kindly tagged me in a meme and since I've not blogged in a while, this is a great excuse to get started. Here's the meme, asking, if I should be canonized, of what would I be patron:

Assuming you are a saint, and your cause has been executed, your miracles confirmed, your date on the calendar established, all that is required is to select that of which Holy Mother Church will name you Patron(ess) of.

For this meme, you must name your patronage and then tag 5 other people who would like to play along.
Linking your answer to your nominator's post would make it easier to get
your answers.
This is a very interesting question. Not that I've spent huge amounts of time pondering my eventual canonization (*wink wink) but after having given it some (all of 5 seconds of) thought, I do believe that I've managed to decently scrape together a few things that I'd like to be patron of.

  1. Penang, Malaysia (and probably Singapore too since they're not likely to have a saint anytime soon unless the Papal Ninja's can pull something out of the hat)
  2. Tanjung Bunga, in Penang (hopefully the seedbed of many many more saints to come)
  3. Masters of Ceremonies (which I have to share with Fr. Daren);
  4. Marching bands
  5. Conductors (the music kind, not the bus or electrical kind)
I'd also like to be patron of the upcoming Crusades and the Reconquista (I'd have to cede the New Evangelization to John Paul the Great, but perhaps be Patron of the Old Evangelization? [the kind that worked?] and maybe be surnamed Matamoros and the Hammer of Heretics but let's not get too carried away.

PS
Does Facebook and Gmail have a patron saint? I'm (gonna be, anyway) open you know.

I have to say, Andrew, that's one dumb meme! Whilst making absolutely no comment about the all round lovliness of those who passed it onto you.

Having said that, I'll probably give it a go.
